Father's Day Card

I can't believe I *STILL* haven't really had any creating time! I am making it a priority to get something done this week!

My Cousin-in-law came over on Saturday to get some help with a scrapbook she's putting together. We had a blast and I had so much fun helping her! I felt my creative juices beginning to flow again, so now I'm REALLY itching to create!

Now I'm just trying to decide whether to stay up late and work on something or go to bed and get up early to get started. Decisions....decisions!!!

I did have time to make a Father's Day card for my FIL. And if you knew him, you'd know why this card was perfect for him. Nothing fancy, but very suited to him.

I found the image online and created a paper piecing from it, and added a little detail with a Zig pen. I mounted it on a lighter cardstock and trimmed it, so it wouldn't blend into the background so much. I printed the sentiment, tore and inked it. Then just added a couple brads. The background paper is by Provo Craft and the cardstock is misc. pieces from my scrap drawer. Once I found the image I wanted to use, this went together very quickly.

My Dad was in China on Father's Day, and we haven't been able to get together to celebrate yet. We will do that next week, so I won't be able to post his until after that.

I promise I will be posting again this week...stay tuned!
